salamanders is actually some kind of butterfly, here is my HMPK "Oceanist" he was a salamander (before he passed away):

salamanders are known as a white tipped BF (butterfly) mostly have red fins but there are several more colors like yellow, purple, and the rarest "blue"

Salamanders contain three colors. One must be the white butterfly pattern on all fins and ventrals.

The other two colors can be anything but they must not be a wash. The body will be one color and then from the body and into the fins will be another.

I've always thought that salamanders were multi - distinct combination of blue-red which many SE Asians call lavender.

I'm still a little confused as to what exactly a salamander is; I just know that a lot of salamander betta I see are very pretty. I've never been very good with colors. What I'm most curious about is how the color pattern got the name "salamander"? How does amphibian = color combination?
